Fabrication Team - Installer
Unlike many of our team members, John Bradham often has the opportunity to see projects fully realized. John has been with Mountain Marble since 2005 and has had experience in many aspects of preparation, including templating and fabrication. Much of his tenure, however, has been spent as part of the installation team.
“There are a lot of unexpected variables in the field, doing install,” notes John, “so you have to be well prepared… make sure you have all the tools, the sinks, the faucets and verify that all the necessary hardware is pre-installed so that everything will fit perfectly. Actually getting the stone safely into the home is often 75% of the challenge, and then there’s the finish work…making it come together the way it’s supposed to.”
Having had experience preparing calibrations and manning many of the fabrication stations, John appreciates the collaborative effort that makes it all possible. “It’s all about the finish line—the team works together to get there. In my opinion, everyone on this team is really gifted and committed,” he says. “I’m glad to work with them. They’re artisans.”
The crowning moment is when the stone is put into place. “Everyone is waiting…it’s the focal point. The stone takes the whole project from the rough to the finish. It’s the icing on the cake,” John observes. “That’s what makes it shine.”
